Here is a couple of shots of the markings on the prop.

Thom,

My boat will stay in the water weeks on end. I only take it out to work on it or get it ready for a show.

We have two boat wells on Harsens Island that I keep mine and Dawn's boat in.

Steve, You always take your boat out of the water every night, don't you? I should say, when you travel to other places other than your Island. So, to and from the entry ramp people will be able to see the prop and it ads a lot to the look of the boat. I view it as a detail, ... that really makes a statement about the whole Rig!

It's all eye-candy, there's nothing wrong with that ... !

Thom,

I will get a picture of the P/N off of the prop and post it. As for the prop nut/cone, I have some chrome spray that and I painted one to go with the prop. All seems like a waste as it will spend more time under water then above...

The prop was already bare aluminum and it looked like it may have been polished at one time. I just used the same polish I use on my boat with a hand towel and it shined right up. Maybe I will save it for my trailering prop...

Pretty. It won’t stay that way for long. We found that a mirror polish actually increased performance, albeit, only perceptible with a tach and GPS.
